While our Residents certainly are blessed to have many activities to participate in throughout the week, no other event is more popular at our home than bingo. And with the recent addition of a gently used stand-alone bingo machine, this activity has become more popular than ever before.
To celebrate its arrival, our activities department planned a grand bingo bonanza in our auditorium where Residents and employees played several different variations on traditional bingo games. Many of the players were thrilled to win various prizes including tickets which can be exchanged for merchandise in our prize boutique.
The machine, which includes an electric blower to mix the bingo balls well, certainly was a big hit with our Residents. Many of them remarked at how wonderful it was to see something so similar to the machines they used to see in bingo halls where they spent many evenings hoping to win big.
As you can see in the picture, everyone (including the Little Sisters) participated in this fun-filled afternoon!
Until next time,
